Fincher was recently nominated for an Oscar in the Best Director category for Social Network. Before Fincher was considered, James Cameron was rumored to be eyeing the Jolie project.

The Sony picture will be based on Stacy Schiff's bestselling book Cleopatra: A Life.

If Fincher lands the gig, this will be Jolie's first time working with the director. Fincher is also attached to Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo.
